I just love this nebular.  Star forming area of dust and gas. This is a better image than before Xmas.
Two sets of exposures to get the core and the dust areas.

Techy bit:  3 x 100sec per RGB and 4 X 130sec L  merged with 3X 60sec per RGB and 4 X 60sec Luminance. Taken with 8inch RC astrograph with a Trius H694 camera running ar -12C. Filter system is StarlightXpress Mount is AzEq6 pro.
